The kids and I really enjoy history. We currently had the chance to review a christian history fiction book called Shepherd, Potter, Spy — and the Star Namer by Peggy Consolver – Author. This book was biblically brought to life in a the most unique way ever. This book is geared for middle school to adult.
How deep does the effects of bullying go in an autistic person? Personally I am not sure so this is just my observations. It seems that the aftermath runs much deeper then I think it does. After all this was said and done I had talked to my son about his feelings. He mentioned that he was really angry and that it effects his character. I told him it was ok to be angry as he had every right to be angry. Somehow, he has to let the anger go so he can move on. We didn’t talk much about after that.
I know in the past I have posted about bullying. It is really hard to watch when your own child is the one getting bullied. When I was younger I was bullied as well. However, in days today bullying is much more easy to do as kids have access to internet, social media and smart phones. Kids now a days seem so much meaner then in my day.
Bullying is a big problem every where you go and it really needs to stop. I have been really upset over this weekend. I really want to make a difference and change how things are in town but I don’t even really know where to start. I am terrified for the kids who don’t speak up.
Your probably wondering where all this is coming from. Well there is a very cruel girl who is very manipulating. She also has her followers who are also called croonies. This girl targets kids whose friends are not around and if they are they will manipulate it so that they side with her and the victim is all alone. How do I know this, well because my son went through it and I also have talked with parents and figured out her pattern.
Seriously bullies just have no common sense. I don’t think they even know what the meaning of friendship is. I am angry because I wonder does this bullying start at home. I am angry because it seems like people want to pick on my son because he is different. It’s called autism. Granted I know my son is not a saint and I am sure he isn’t telling me everything. I want to just go to the parents and rip them a new one. In this case I know it probably wouldn’t matter because it doesn’t seem like they care.
